What's in the Box
(1) 5.8L/351 Short Block Assembly
(1) Timing Chain Set
Our economy short blocks are just the ticket for that budget build! This economy short block is a direct replacement for 1993-1995 SVT Lightning 351W applications. Our remanufactured short blocks start as good cores that are dissassembled, then placed in state-of-the-art, environmentally safe burners, followed by steel shot blasting to clean. The blocks are magnifluxed, inspected for cracks, bored and precision honed to manufacturer's specifications. They are then fitted with new, .040"-.060" over cast aluminum pistons and cast rings*. 28-oz. cranks are precision ground to recommended specifications, and micro-polished. Short blocks do not include cam or timing chain. Each economy remanufactured shortblock includes a 90-day, 4,000 mile limited warranty**.
The cylinder bores are machined the minimum amount to bring them in to spec, between .040" & .060". All bores will be the same size. If a cylinder cannot be bored back to true, then a sleeve will be installed so that the block can still be serviceable.
* * * NOTE: Must Re-use original threaded oil filter bung.* * *
*Cast aluminum pistons and cast iron rings are recommended for naturally aspirated combinations only. Not recommended for superchargers, turbos, or nitrous. Always check piston-to-valve clearance when installing aftermarket performance heads or cams.
**Some conditions apply. This is a replacement warranty only. Labor and shipping costs not included in warranty. Installing incorrect parts, Overheating, abuse, or lack of regular maintenance may void warranty.
Testimonial: Late model helped build two of my mustangs
I have had a bunch of different mustangs in the past and always was hard to get parts till a friend told me about Late model restoration when I had my 1993 cobra and I found everything I needed to finish that car and am now working on my 1986 gt and am finding everything I need . I had a transmission mount delivered to me without the mounting bolts and they more than made up the difference for the missing bolts ! Out of all the parts I have ordered one mistake ever was very well taken care of . I definitely will plan on finishing my 86 gt with the help of Late model restoration ! Thanks !
